Snowfest 2017 proceeds benefit local nonprofit

The fifth annual Columbia County Snowfest is returning to Evans Towne Center Park.

Snowfest 2017, set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 14, is offering free admission into the event, though armbands cost $10 for select attractions such as rides. The annual event is produced by Mullins Management & Entertainment, and each year proceeds from Snowfest benefit a local charity. This year, proceeds will benefit Press On, a nonprofit that supports research towards a cure for childhood cancer.

Snowfest 2017 includes live music, food vendors, arts and crafts, inflatables, a carnival area, climbing wall, trackless train, kid's karaoke and showcases from local schools.

"Folks from all over the CSRA come to Snowfest for a unique kind of fun," said Joe Mullins, the CEO of Mullins Management & Entertainment. "Our sponsors play a key role in helping to make sure the event is successful and our support of this year's nonprofit beneficiary Press On is meaningful."

Snowfest 2017 will also feature snow tubing slides and the return of the original snow fields and the popular costumed Snowfest friends and characters. Some 6,000 people are expected to attend this year.
"We have many ways companies can partner with Snowfest, including signage, mentions in material leading up to the event and on-site space to display products and services. It's a great way to get out into the community and see customers and prospects - all for a good cause," Mullins said.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information or for vendor information, contact Shae at (706) 463-8696 or visit columbiacountysnowfest.com.
